by Christopher Smith

Ministry Of Mars are an indie pop/synth-pop electronic music duo, consisting of brothers Alistair and Jon Marsden. The siblings grew up in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, for their early childhood and in 2008 moved to Brisbane, Queensland, where they now currently live.

Their debut single “Breaking Me” was released in November 2018 which has achieved great success in such a short time. On Spotify alone, “Breaking Me” has been added to over 500 playlists and accumulated over 50,000 streams within two months of the release and still rising.

Their follow up second single “Recognise”, was written and produced at Abbey Road Studios in London when the brothers were on a overseas trip in January 2019, writing music in the UK and Asia. The boys are perfecting their debut live show to follow after the release of “Recognise” for the middle of 2019.

Both Alistair and Jon have achieved solo success in the music industry leading up to forming the Ministry of Mars project. Alistair won a Queensland Music Award in 2015 for his song writing and production. In 2013, he took second place in Perth’s Into The Limelite DJ Competition in the lead up to Stereosonic Music Festival. Alistair has played at numerous venues, clubs and festivals across Brisbane as a DJ and live electronic music act.
